MAC Costa Chic

Costa Chic – £15

I don’t know if any of you are like me, but  each season I tend to find a perfect product, then use it until the end of the season, when the cycle repeats. This season I have found my ideal summer lipstick, namely MAC Costa Chic. 

This frost finish is perfect to inject some coral into your make up routine without it being too bold, or orange. That’s one of the main things I struggle with when trying coral products, they feel too orange for me. If like me you like orange-toned lip products but just don’t want to go the whole Velma from Scooby Doo and go for a bright version, this is for you. You don’t have to commit to the trend fully and can still maintain a naturalish lip, just with a subtle coral tint, updating your look for more of a summer vibe. Like I said, pigmentation wise, this is relatively subtle, but the payoff is still good and is of the expected MAC quality. It’s staying power really does vary depending on what your doing but after 2-3 hours you’ll need a top up. I’ve worn this both during the daytime with minimal make up and at night paired with a golden smokey eye and it looks equal beautiful in both settings. This is one lipstick I think I’ll be bringing out year on year. 

Are you a bit too nervous to go for a bright orange like me?
